Back to businesss

Well, I decided to use this Thanksgiving Break time to reread a webcomic I haven’t read in years. Note to self: webcomics can last for a long time, so the process of reading them all in one go can be extremely mindnumbing, but enjoyable nonthless. No wonder they give it to you one page at a time.

Anyway, now that I’m done with that, I need to get back to buisness. I currently have about sixteen images with which I can assemble a calendar. It is no longer really necessary that I create any more calendar images, although it is nice to have a certain… objective when it comes to creating these images.

Part of me wants to try something aside from art. Like creative writing. I wish I could tell you how many documents I have on my computer in which I fiddle around with creative writing. Bunches and bunches of little scenes and incomplete thoughts. So even though I’ve spent a fair amount of time dabbing into it, it’s awefully hard to feel acomplished when you haven’t got anything finished. Maybe if I keep at it for another ten years, I’ll have something- like how it took me twenty years to get to where I am with art. That’s a little disheartening.

I am an expert at disheartening myself. Which is why I need a mentor. Positive reinforcement, that’s the ticket.

For the sake of adding color to this post, I am including more pictures from our Thanksgiving Hike.

Back in the game

It’s fun what a night’s sleep can do for you. I’m good now. I still don’t know what I’m doing with my art, but I know what I’m doing now. I got to work on that image I mentioned yesterday. I can tell right now that it’s not going to be a masterpiece, it’s just a little treat for me. Something simple I can do in a few days.

It’s actually fun, my featured female is… well, I tried to give her a pallet that was like a wax candle, but instead of a little candle flame, her hair is a burst of fire. Of course, hearing that you might think that I’ve got something really good going, but it’s not acutally that good. It’s just the idea that I like. This little girl, my featured female, is going to be my little light, my firecracker, with all of the brightness and energy that I wish I had.

However, while I’m not exactly desparing about my artowkr anymore, the back of my mind is still wondering what it is I’m doing with my artwork, and if maybe I should invest more time in a defferent talent. But if that’s the case, what should I go for?

But at least I have something to work on while I get that figured out. I just hope that I can come up with something quickly. I mean, I’m not going to have a lot of time when school starts in the winter. That’s why I’m so concerned about being productive and getting stuff done, creating things now while I can.
